Illegal immigrants from Uganda detained in Busia

BY ALLAN TAWAI

Police in Busia have arrested 53 suspected illegal immigrants who sneaked into the country from Uganda.

The group which consisted men, women and children was nabbed at Bumala town about 21km from the Busia border while on their way to Nairobi by bus.

Busia County Police Commandant Wambua Katiithi said most of the suspects did not have identification documents when they were arrested except a few who had forged temporary entry permits.

Police said most of them spoke Luganda, the language of the Baganda people.

“We managed to net those following concerted efforts between police and the Immigration Department. Our target was those who didn’t have required travel documents such as passports and yellow fever certificates,” said Mr Katiithi.

Earlier reports indicated that Ugandan soldiers detained three Kenyan police officers near Mageta and Hama Islands in Lake Victoria on Monday while on a mission to rescue local fishermen who had been arrested earlier at Nambo Beach by the Ugandan officers.

The heavily armed Ugandan soldiers had hijacked five boats belonging to the local fishermen and confiscated the boat engines. The fishermen, who were reportedly captured around 4 pm, were left stranded in high seas after Museveni’s men removed and took away their boat engines.

The arrested foreigners will be arraigned and charged with being in the country illegally.

“There has been a syndicate of individuals who lure them into the with job offers at a fee,” said Mr Katiithi.

Human trafficking and smuggling of goods on the Kenya-Uganda border has forced the government to invest heavily in border surveillance. The Children’s Department in the region raised alarm over trafficking of minors on the border.

Busia County Children’s Services coordinator Esther Wasige said there are at least four cases of child trafficking on the border every week.

According to a Chinese newspaper, Taizhou Evening News, the anonymous woman went on a blind date with a 29-year-old man identified as Liu in eastern Chinese province of Zhejiang.

Reports indicate that the date was organised by Liu’s mom who was worried about her son who had been single for long.

The man had offered to pay for the meal with the thought that it would be a romantic dinner for two but shock on him.

Published

on

Alot has been said about Maureen Waititu and ex, Frankie Just Gym It who doubles up as her baby daddy and ex fiance. The former couple has been giving fans and bloggers a good reason to continue snooping into their personal life as they like to parade it on social media.

However, what we can say is that they both had been drowning in a toxic relationship for a while; and this can be seen in the blame game that they continue to play in front of their followers. On Tuesday, 2o October Frankie Just Gymit shared a special message dedicated to his son as he celebrated his 5th birthday; but what caught our attention is the part he revealed that his ex has denied hi access to his boys. He wrote;

Since I have no access to you, I’ll pass these words on and hope they find you. Be true to yourself always. Live your own dreams. Don’t take life so seriously. And, last but certainly not least, Know that I love you and will always be there for you. No matter what, I’ve got your back. You are my son and always will be. Happy Birthday Lexi.

Maureen shares birthday photos

Maureen on the other hand has however chosen to maintain her silence; but this does not mean she will not be posting anything. As seen on her latest post, the mother of two has gone ahead to share a few photos showing how lit her baby’s birthday was.

Judging from the set up, we can agree that indeed the single mum went all out for her baby boy; but as much as she has issues with her ex lover, she should have let the baby daddy celebrate with her son. No?
